About The Wine

There can be no doubt that Ricky Evans is a star on the rise. His boutique label Two Tonne Tasmania is a name to watch on the Apple Isle.

The EST Pinot Noir comes from a small, mature vineyard on the North Eastern coastline of Tasmania. Views of the sea can be taken in from the vineyard, a marginal site with a unique climate for producing finely detailed Pinot Noir.

The small inclusion of whole bunch lending structure and architecture to this wonderfully pure feeling wine. It's a treat to drink and only made in limited quantities. Ricky's wines are never available for long so if you want to see what he's up to, buy now or forever hold your peace.

About Two Tonne Tasmania

With the slogan ‘small parcels, big love’, Ricky Evans' thoughtful winemaking approach has seen his southern star rise rapidly with a swag of accolades in a relatively short time.

Since his serendipitous entry into the much sort after sub-region of the Tamar Valley in 2013, he has garnered a reputation for producing some of Tasmania's most exciting and hard-to-get small batch wines.

Pinot Noir is Ricky’s main game, and he plays hardball. His Pinots show brilliant light and shade. A gentle touch in the winery allows fruit and vineyard to shine - a theme that carries through his excellent regional examples of Riesling and Chardonnay.

The wines of TTT typify the purity and elegance of modern Tasmania.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The EST17 Pinot Noir is sourced from one of the most coastal and northern vineyards in Tasmania.  

Grown just north of Bicheno, a mature vineyard that lies within view of the ocean to the north and east.  This highly maritime climate results in an extremely long and mild growing season, with a smaller than average diurnal range. 

The soft and velvety fruit profile of this vineyard is on feature in this wine, yet it still received a small amount of whole bunch inclusion in the ferment to aid structure and balance.

This wine received no finings, minimal sulphur dioxide, and bottled unfiltered.

Blend : Pinot Noir (100%)
ABV : 13.00%
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2026
Bottle Size : 750ml

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Little plusher in style than the TMV. Smells of cherry elixir, pepper, seaweed, some hints of game. It's soft and silky in the mouth. All the fruit tucked in nicely with powdery tannins that are trimmed with a savoury edge. So bright. So rad. And a set up from the 2016, to be sure. Phwoa... - Different Drop Wine Team

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
